IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BREXIT AND VAT


The date for the imposition of The Withdrawal Agreement for the UK to leave the EU is now set at January 31st 2020.

The time between February 1st and December 31st 2020 is now known as the Transition Period. Current EU VAT regulations remain in place in the UK throughout the Transition Period.

So for orders going to all EU member countries, the price you pay on this website still includes VAT (and duties).

When your Sargent order reaches you in your EU country, there will be NO EXTRA CHARGES to be paid by you.

This will not change until at least January 1st 2021.

THEREFORE, SO LONG AS YOUR ORDER IS PLACED ON THIS WEBSITE BY NOVEMBER 16TH, By Noon. 2020, FOR OUT OF STOCK ITEMS, WE CAN BE CERTAIN TO DELIVER YOUR ORDER TO YOU BEFORE DECEMBER 31ST 2020 BECAUSE THE TRANSIT TIMES FOR ANYWHERE IN EUROPE ARE NO MORE THAN 6 DAYS.
IN THIS CASE YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING EXTRA TO PAY.

FOR IN STOCK ITEMS, THE ORDER DEADLINE DATE IS DECEMBER 10TH 2020


For those other countries in Europe, but not in the EU, nothing has changed - we do not charge VAT and you will have to pay duty and taxes when your order enters your country.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER BREXIT
When the Transition Period ends on January 1st 2021, but WITHOUT a customs agreement, this will be the situation:

Our prices will remain as they are, but we will not charge VAT to our customers outside of the UK.
When the package reaches your country, you will have to pay Customs Duty and VAT.
This is calculated like this:

3.8% Duty is payable on our total invoice value, INCLUDING SHIPPING.
VAT is then charged on the [ Invoice amount + Duty ]. The rate of VAT is the standard rate of VAT in your country (not the UK rate).

This means the only extra cost of purchasing products from us after Britain leaves the EU is the 3.8% Duty.

If Britain leaves WITH a Customs Agreement, there should NOT be any Duty to be paid, just the VAT in your country. Which means there would be no difference in cost between before leaving the EU and after.

NOTE:
The Customs formalities and payments are usually completed on your behalf by the courier company delivering your order, which they then pass on to you.
Normally, they would notify you of the duties and VAT to be paid and wait for your payment before delivering.
Courier companies charge a standard fee for doing this work - usually less than 10.00 Euro.
This means there is no extra administration work for you to do, other than paying the Duty/VAT bill.
